Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Hi All, Well, I installed SoftSkin Photo Makeup Pro 1.1 on Windows 7 64Bit with no problems at all and it was fast and easy to register and the program is fast and easy to use. Unfortunately it is very much just as the revues above have stated! Sloppy, hard to control and in the finished product it definitely shows the the photo has been air brushed or doctored and looks very UN-Natural! On the good side if you maximize the photo and do small changes they blend in Farly well. The photo enhancement of the entire photo and RED Eye etc. All work fare to good as well. I am a photographer and use Photoshop all most exclusively! But as they say you get what you pay for! That brings out a point that SoftSkin Photo Makeup Pro 1.1 is equal to most of the Low end "FREE" Alternatives And of course I realize it is FREE today thanks to GOTD and in my humble opinion it should probably be released as "Free Ware" Or at best one of them sale programs for $9.99! It does have its good points and as stated above if you a hobbyist photographer or just take vacation photos etc. This program will fill the nitch and would work well in say in the field off your lap-top for minor correction and repairs for the novice that does not need or want to pay a lot of money for a first rate photo editor like Photoshop! I always look at new photo editing tools as sometimes you find some really good utilities that work very well. SoftSkin Photo Makeup Pro 1.1 is a good program and does exactly what it says it will do and is, As I have stated; Great for the novice or someone that just needs to make there vacation photos a little better from a some what low end camera? SoftSkin Photo Makeup Pro 1.1 is one of them offering on GOTD that anyone interested in these type of applications needs to download and install Today while its is FREE! and they will have to decide for themselves if it is something that works for them or not! Then use it!, Or Uninstall!
Of Me SoftSkin Photo Makeup Pro 1.1 gets 1 Thumb Up! I Thank SoftOrbits and GOTD for making the Application Available for all of us to Test, Use and keep for as long as we wish for FREE! Today! Thank You! Have a great Day everyone! Take Care, But Always Have Fun! Rick D.

to those who mention the gioguy he does not try the programs just finds something on the 'net so he can cut & paste here. What he craves is attention like clicking the like on facebook.. that's what he is after. Be careful when using his suggestions.
http://www.techsupportalert.com/ and Ashraf's site much safer. IMHO.

I do appreciate GAOTD and what is offered whether spelling is wrong or whether I need it or not and I love the honest reviews that help us all.

#22 XP-Man - Since you did not use the person's whole name, just Einstein and Leonardo, I have no idea who you are talking about?

I once knew an "Al" and a "Da Winki" but i will not assume you meant them.

Please elucidate your obfuscation for us.

First thing, I love the way registration is designed in this give away. Everything is provided to register in Readme file and no need to undergo trouble of waiting for return email etc as a lot of times you see on GAOTD.

Installed on Win7 64, registered with ease.

I am very good at using Photoshop so program looks very simply to me. I would think it would be a good easy to use software for someone who takes picture, need limited retouch in simple form such as red eye removal, lipstick, some whitening of teeth or eye but doesn't want the trouble of learning a more comprehensive software. May be my wife will like this program. Personally I would not spend $30 on this program though liked it. Too simple. I don't advise a friend to buy either instead if asked, will send a friend for Photoshop Element at under $100 that will give a lot more, once one learns how to use it.

As for program itself, Here goes what my 2 minute use of program showed me:
I like to see "Image correction" at the left side of tool bar. How do work on a portrait format shoot image before you rotate it? Then when you click on Original image, rotation is also back to original; Well it is really what it says to do but then how can you see the correction you made on face nicely when again a portrait shoot image goes back to wrong side horizontal (Landscape format)? I definitely like to see layers that can be turn off or on the way stronger photoediting softwares s.a. CS does, instead of Original Image tool. Not sure still as to what is the use of Selection marker. The Help window that is useful for other tools, is not helping here either. Undo and Redo bottoms are nice, so is zoom. Yet to find the difference between Bleach and Concealer Brush when color is white. Spot remover is not doing what I hope to see. Wish is for a Blur tool that would remove harsh skin or wrinkle, also if lipstick had transparency option.
And one last thing, Program crashed three times on me before being able to save final result. My system is beefed up adequately to run any kind of still, video or audio program so I doubt if lack of system requirement is the problem here.

Your comment regarding spelling was interesting, fortunately others work has not been judged on their ability to spell, if it had we will have lost a few reasonably bright people, just a few examples;-
The recently offered ‘Beauty Pilot’ is the best one I found for my dithery old hands and I felt it produced the most natural looking finished product. Of course it requires another program to apply "make up" etc.

Giovanni, not always your suggestions good ones. This stylepix thing is a mess. Another question: who is censoring the feedbacks? A kind of IT NSA?

Reply   |   Comment by bernard  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

I have a kind of tested this and it doesn't really deserve a 'review' (yet). Not only 'basic', too deficient, clumsy and buggy to be of any use.

30 dollars for this program is a bad joke. The powerful Sagelight editor, for instance, costs 40 USD at the moment. Not to mention dozens of excellent free tools.

Seems like there have been several 'GiveAways' in this category of software. I remember recently seeing the 'Beauty Pilot' give away. It is an ok tool, but I'm wondering why so many similar programs are being offered? Some are better than others, but they all do basically the same thing..

Thanks Giovanni.

Beware of stylepix. Even if you decline the optionals by using the advanced option, it tries to install toolbars and messes up firefox and websites with ads.

@ #2, Mara: You’re right: One needs a very steady hand to apply lipstick or eye liner. However, even with a pencil of a graphic tablet and with endmost concentration, I fail to get a halfway satisfying result. It’s impossible for me to retain the shapes, even if I alter the settings for the tools to the smallest line as possible.

Installed and tried to remove "spots" - took an awful lot of time, and the result was dismal.Tried the concealer brush - it leaves the applied area different skin colour.

Absolutely useless, unless vendor can tell what else I should do to get better results.

I had this before when it was on GAOTD but lost it when I had to do a complete reinstall of windows wiping out everything. So happy to have it back again. I love it!!

I don't see any serious "free" alternatives mentioned here or even purchased software that is in the same price range.

@ Comment #1 "Giovanni"...While everyone is familiar and appreciates your expertise...Why are you "Again" mentioning 3 alternatives that have very few features in the "Lite, free version"??? They are useless. In my humble opinion; PhotoScape, which is always free, has much better control and features than most paid for softwares.
I do agree that it is time to move on with other types of software...the offerings are all mediocre and too many deal with...or attempt to deal with the same categories. Free to try is great...if the software were of any note. Same old stuff being re-hashed...I haven't downloaded anything in at least 6 months.
Sorry for my mini rant...just expressing what seems to be a common complaint here. Thanks anyway GOTD

Very disappointing overall. My favorite by far is one of the previous Giveaway-of-the-Day offerings -- Perfect 365, which I would like to see offered again since I just got a new computer. This tool is rudimentary at best and will do in a pinch if there is nothing else available. But the lack of precision control over the image is a killer for me, as is the lack of any "one click fixes" with manual override. It's not an awful program and with respect to Giovanni, I like these kids of giveaways. But there are better tools available. This is fine if you have nothing else in your bag of tricks.

tried it, however I couldn't apply the concealer on my picture without making my picture look bad. I guess you have to have some real steady hands to be creative like that, but it downloaded and installed good. thumbs down for this program and I own some of this company software like remove logo now suite.

#2: "Perhaps if a user doesn’t have any other, even basic, photo editing programs this may be okay … but while intuitive to use, one needs a very steady hand, for example, when applying lipstick or eye liner."

Less of a steady hand I would imagine than if you were applying the real thing. :)

Regardless the software you use, that's where graphics or drawing tablets come in, & you don't need a seriously expensive Wacom -- just something that lets you use the same, natural hand motions you use when sketching, doodling, or yes, applying makeup. It is possible to do the same painting or drawing motions with a mouse -- it's just harder because moving a mouse around on your desk is just not the same sort of natural movement.

Alternatively, again regardless the software you're using, make & use selections, which can limit whatever you're doing to the selected area. You can add to &/or subtract from a selection, paint it on in "brush strokes" or create it a few pixels at a time with each mouse click so that you get it just right. Some software does make it faster/easier, though you often have to dig a bit deeper when researching whatever app to find out, since that's not always something marketing types focus on.

One method I sometimes use with a copy of the image or a duplicate layer is to start by removing or clearing everything outside the area I want to select, 1st by repeatedly using the rectangle selection tool, hitting delete to clear each selection, working my way from the outside in. That way I've Very quickly got the area I want to select, surrounded by just a thin band of pixels that's easier [& faster] for me to get rid of. Once I've got the area selected I can copy/paste onto the complete image, usually with a bit of feathering, control the transparency & method of blending etc. so that whatever touch-up is just right.

* * *

#7: " For me also the end results look somewhat false and shout out ‘this is airbrushed’. "

The problem is that regardless the software used, treating color & texture at the same time alters, somewhat damages texture. To cure that sort of thing research Frequency Separation, which is a method that's becoming more & more popular as it allows you to work with each [color & texture] separately. SoftSkin Photo Makeup is designed to make some types of touch-up easier, so if you like the way it works there's no reason you can't use it for example on a copy or layer of the image that just represents the color, then merge the results back together with the texture layer.

Regarding No. 4: The Companies that give away the Software, I reckon do not make up the Invitation to download the software. That I believe is made by Giveaway of the Day. So Do NOT Blame the Donor which is supplying the program for free.

Sorry but for me this one doesn't stay on board. It is really quite basic and as far as I can see does nothing that a dozen and one other paid for and free programs cannot do. For me also the end results look somewhat false and shout out 'this is airbrushed'. So thanks but no thanks.

"Let us introduce SoftSkin Photo Makeup – a program by SoftOribts, an award winning software development company."
If you cannot spell your own company's name correctly in the description, then you are not a serious contender in this field let alone an "Award Winning" company.

The software itself is too basic and not even that good at those basics. Tried and uninstalled.

Reply   |   Comment by Jem Millar  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

How is this different from Soft orbit photo retoucher given away on GAOTD before?

Reply   |   Comment by Peter B  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-31)

This software installed very easily with no 'hidden goodies' waiting to be installed along with it by unsuspecting users.

But sadly, while I really really wanted this program to be a great one, I'm afraid it simply didn't work as I'd hoped it would.

Perhaps if a user doesn't have any other, even basic, photo editing programs this may be okay ... but while intuitive to use, one needs a very steady hand, for example, when applying lipstick or eye liner.

I do apologize for this poor review, especially since I really do appreciate software creators being kind enough to give programs away free here.

My review may be harsh because I have other programs that do the same and even a better job faster and easier ... but sadly, suspect I won't be alone in being disappointed.

Yes it does the job but Beauty Guide and/or Cosmetic Guide do the same for FREE:


And for a more comprehensive FREE & PORTABLE Image Editing tool:


HINT: how about focusing on different kind of apps?
